Comp Plan Updates: Are our appointed boards representing us?

Two significant presentations of the latest draft of the Comprehensive Plan are coming up June 8 and 10. Each meeting addresses important matters, like economic development, land use, quality of life and the environment:

Here's a question: When you read, "This draft includes public comment and recommendations from the Planning Commission," how do you relate to that statement?

Does the Planning Commission as currently composed seem balanced, fair, open to different perspectives? If not, why not, and how could that be remedied?

Is it time to consider how well Sarasota's appointed Boards are managing to reflect the diversity of thought and assumptions about the economy, growth, and planning that exist countywide? If so, how could they be improved?

Feel free to share your thoughts with sarasotavision@gmail.com.
